Celebrate the people who make our neighborhood great with Seattle’s 18th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day on Feb. 11. The event was started by Phinney Ridge’s own Judith Wood, who suggested the city set aside a day to honor great neighbors.
From the city’s press release:
- Plan an activity for your neighborhood such as a block party, potluck, or work party. The website, www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/neighborday, provides ideas, tools, resources, and templates to help community members organize an activity. Once organized, the event can be posted to the online calendar atwww.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/neighborday/eventsubmit.htm (the submission can be made public or private).
- Send out Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting e-cards to your neighbors. The selection of e-cards feature artwork from past winners of the Neighbor Appreciation Day Student Art Contest.
- Share a story or two about your favorite neighbors. Community members can visit the Neighbor Appreciation Day website to post stories about great neighbors or their neighborhood.
- Attend one of the many community activities listed on the online calendar. Seattle Fire stations, Seattle Parks and Recreation community centers and pools, and other organizations have special Neighbor Appreciation Day events and work parties planned.
